“…the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” – John 6:63
The Bible is known as the written Word of God. When Jesus walked the earth, He was the living Word of God. As the Living Word, Jesus Christ made a conscious choice to speak life and to call forth the good that he knew existed in each individual. Jesus Christ spoke life to those who were sick and they were healed.
Jesus Christ spoke life to those who were dead and they were raised to life again. Jesus Christ spoke life to those who were possessed with demons and they were delivered and set free. Jesus spoke life to the lepers and they were cleansed. Jesus spoke life to the woman caught in adultery and her life was changed forever. Jesus spoke life to the woman at the well and she became a living well for the people of her city.
Although Jesus Christ is no longer here in a physical form, he is still speaking life. He is at the right hand of the Father making intercession for people. He is praying for those who have not yet had their spiritual awakening so that they can experience the abundant life and the eternal life that he came to manifest on the earth. He is seeing them as the children of God that they are: perfect, whole and complete. He is holding the vision of their perfection and their wholeness.
Even though we live on the earth, in consciousness we are seated together with him in heavenly places. Jesus represents the Christ consciousness and we have the mind of Christ (I Corinthians 2:16). We can think his thoughts. We can operate according to his ways. We can speak his words. We can do what he did and even greater works (John 14:12).
